We want runners. But we also need volunteers—because they play a crucial part in one of the most exciting Sundays of the year: August 25. That’s when downtown Northampton becomes a road race hub as Gándara Center’s 5th Annual Frozen Yogurt 5K helps us to raise awareness of mental health and addiction disorders and to help put an end to the stigma surrounding these often misunderstood illnesses that affect so many of our friends and families.

We need volunteers for the water stations to keep our runners hydrated, and to help at our registration table. We are also recruiting volunteers to be race monitors and be a part of our setup and take-down crew.

Membership in our volunteer brigade has its privileges: you get a free Frozen Yogurt from GoBerry and you get a free Frozen Yogurt 5K t-shirt! And we have a lot of fun.

Attention Runners!

There is no better way to burn calories and get cardio exercise than training for a 5K! Our 5K! The race begins 9:00 a.m. in downtown Northampton.

Register here! Kids 12 and under run for free, and all runners—and walkers—get a free GoBerry Frozen Yogurt. Leashed pets are also welcome to run for free!

Registration on race day will be available beginning at 8:00 a.m. Credit and debit cards will be accepted. The staging area is on the Courthouse Lawn across from the Calvin Theater. For GPS purposes please use 19 King Street Northampton, MA.

Our 5K is officially timed by RaceWire. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each of the following categories: Male, Female, male 12 and under, female 12 and under, male 50 and over, and female 50 and over.
